The doors are being refurbished and, on their return, will operate automatically in conjunction with a new sensor. The doors leading to the platform will be treated similarly.
As a listed building the plans for these changes have been scrutinised carefully and we thank Joanne Brooks, High Peak Borough Council's Conservation Officer, for her invaluable advice in ensuring the changes will match the two existing external doors - one alongside the entrance and the other at the entrance to the Coop. It is hoped the doors will be back in place in the near future.
The investment is part of a wider plan by Northern to improve facilities. Dinting station has recently benefited from a new ticket office window/counter and automatic doors. Electronic train information and announcements have helped passengers use the correct platform. Dinting has 2 platforms served by bi-directional services. Similar improvements have been made at Broadbottom. The clarity of electronic information and announcements has been much appreciated by users of Broadbottom as mobile phone coverage can be problematic. We thank Northern for this ongoing investment.
